Audi sets 58th straight monthly sales record in United States in October

Audi of America has announced it 58th straight monthly sales record in United States in October when sales rose by 16.8%.

It seems the ongoing dieselgate hasn’t affected at all Audi’s sales as last month the Volkswagen-owned premium marque delivered 17,700 cars which represents a 16.8% increase compared to October 2014 when they shifted 15,150 units. October 2015 was also Audi’s fifth-best U.S. sales month ever while in the first ten months of the year their deliveries jumped by a significant 13% to 165,103 cars.

The impressive achievement was possible thanks to a major 31.1% sales hike for the Q3, Q5 and Q7 models, with Q3’s deliveries increasing by 29.9% compared to last year while sales of the Q5 and Q7 went up by 36.2% and 21.2%, respectively. Another blockbuster was the TT which has made the switch to the third generation that has enjoyed a huge 628.1% sales increase compared to 2014.

Despite being on its way to retirement, the A4 B8 posted a 27.7% increase compared to the same month of last year while the A7 and A3 enjoined year-over-year increases of 15.9% and 14.8%, respectively.
